Interpretations:I Like Fun (Song)
About Flansburgh?[edit | edit source]
The lyrics include "at the age of 58", which I suppose is a reference to JF's age. So is the song about him? The first verse talks about getting prescription drugs—does anyone know if JF is on anything? :S
Parkour enthusiasts are known for their great leaps and jumps: defying gravity. It's another reference to the protagonist losing reality ("float away") when he's not on his pills.
Actually, they touched on this in the Google Talk. John Flansburgh wrote the song, but he is a year younger than John Linnell, who is 58 years old at the time of I Like Fun's release. Linnell jokingly says something along the lines of "did you write the song about me?", but I can't recall what else occured in the conversation. My guess is that Flans wrote 58 instead of 57 because 57 has more syllables. User:RoseQuartz__ 13:49, 25 January 2018 (EDT)
